Pomegranate, Persimmon & Goat Cheese Salad

December 17, 2014

Things are about to get real honest up in here, fast. During the holidays I plan to eat. That’s no-holds-barred eating. Appetizers, sweets, turkey and stuffing – nothing is off limits. Food is one of my favourite part of the holidays, so I don’t want to limit myself, anything goes next week!

Pomegranate
Now, at risk of sounding like a holiday trash compactor, let me clarify. I’ve spent the past few months preparing for this moment. I have been exercising, eating healthy, and limiting my casual alcohol intake. Everything in moderation, right?

I’ve been enjoying meals like Ricotta Stuffed Eggplant, vegetable rich Beef Stew, and blended burgers galore! But one thing that has been on constant repeat is this uber delicious Pomegranate, Persimmon & Goat Cheese Salad. So fresh. So tasty. So healthy!

Pomegranate, Persimmon & Goat Cheese Salad

This simple salad is perfect as a side or light lunch. Crunchy pomegranate seeds add sweetness to this salad, while the sliced persimmons add a nice pop of colour. The simple rice wine vinaigrette is just the right amount of tangy against the creamy goat cheese. An excellent salad to detox with after (or before) the holidays.

Ingredients
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
Fresh cracked black pepper & sea salt to taste
2 cups mixed greens
1/2 a persimmon, sliced
1/4 cup of fresh pomegranate seeds
1 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
1 tbsp chopped walnuts

Directions
1. Add oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into the bottom of a salad bowl. Whisk until combined.
2. Add mixed greens to the bowl and toss until coated.
3. Place greens on plate and top with persimmon, pomegranate, goat cheese and walnuts.

Tip // When making an oil based vinaigrette, all you have to remember is the 3:1 ratio. Three parts oil to one part vinegar.

I’m obviously looking forward to the food, what are you looking forward to this holiday season?

    Yum! I'm totally making this. I never know what to do with rice wine vinegar. Persimmons have been at the market for weeks now, but I have yet to pick any up.
